Re: Toastrack power supply???

Cheers. I'll get one ordered. Only got given a bare unit so this and SCART lead are necessary. Mutanat did one of my ZX81's and I got my DivMMc from them so that's where it'll be going. Brilliant service, and a bar of chocolate! If you know, you know! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Re: Toastrack power supply??? Now I'm confused!

Thanks for all the replies. πŸ‘ Now I use a DivMMc future on my 48k so I'll be using that on the toastie as well. Should I get an adaptor with more than 1.4A or less than 1.4A? Or is the 48k PSU good to go? Seems to be mixed messges here, or I'm confused! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ By the way I've tested it today and I'm ge...

Re: Toastrack power supply???

Cheers guys. Just wasn't sure the 48k one would be ok on longer sessions. Is it same spec, I know it doesn't 'match' the machine but I'll live with that for now.

Toastrack power supply???

Hi guys. I've just picked up (be here next week) a bare Spectrum Toastrack. Not tested but that's no isuue as I'll probably have it refurbed. My question is, does the original 48k PSU work with these (I have three!) or is it a specific one? If so, what's the ideal replacement to get if anyone knows?...

Re: .81 files to .p file anyone ???

Not tried an emulator, not realy my thing. I'm going straight from the DZXuino to a physical machine.

Re: .81 files to .p file anyone ???

Thanks for that Mark, and the attatched document. Thing is, the DZXuino doesn't like .81 files so they must be stored or read differently? I'm just getting going so forgive my ignorance. These things certainly get a grip after 39 years! :)

.81 files to .p file anyone ???

Hi everyone. Does anybody have a way of converting .81 file downloads to .P files? I've only used an android tablet, and phone, to download stuff but I'm able to get everything to SD for both the DZXuino and DivMMc future, as well as the PlayZX app of course. Just need help with these stubborn .81 f...

Re: 32k benefits and software?

Yep. I wanted to see what the extra memory would give me and got it for a decent price. My other standard one is gonna go to Mutant for a fix so I'll have the 32k to mess around with. Still looking for a ZXPand but to no luck yet.
